Migrating again...

It's our final weekend in Grand Rapids, MI before we head out to Bellingham, WA the roundabout way. 

Everything has been falling into place for our trip out there. My jobs all let me work until the last minute and we've been scrimping and saving, which means that I have met and exceeded my financial goal for my time in Michigan. We have an awesome apartment waiting for us when we get to Bellingham and Chris got a job that, as far as we know, will pay him well and give him lots of hours (he'll be working for an arborist). I just got my financial aid package, which was about what I expected and luckily is still subsidized, at least for the summer. 

I'm so excited about the road trip out west! Our itinerary includes Pictured Rocks National Seashore, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Tetons National Park and Hood River with old friends. I'll be sure to update in the next couple of weeks with pictures of our trip. 

I said good-bye to all but one of my favorite people at one of my jobs, Jester's Court, today, even though I have to come in tomorrow. That's depressing. I really loved my friends there and honestly it was a fun place to work, even if it wasn't exactly what I wanted to do forever. 

I feel like I've said this a hundred times, but I'm looking forward to putting down roots somewhere soon. I'm tired of saying good-bye.
